Business continuity is not necessarily about damage control because your business is failing. Oftentimes, it is about embarking on the next leg of your business journey. You have achieved everything you planned to achieve in the first leg and you are ready for the next level.
Therefore, you can look at business continuity as planning to grow or expand your business. Expansion usually calls for more space. If you are in manufacturing or merchandising, you will certainly need the extra space because you expect to produce more or get more stock. Either way, storage space is needed.
Enter Temporary Structures
Temporary buildings such as those built by Smart-Space really come in handy. Why should you look to temporary structures to provide solutions for business continuity?
There are at least 3 reasons why:
- Time saving
Simply put, opting for a permanent building means having to wait until you can:
- Find the perfect building to rent or purchase
- Wait for your one to be built.
In the meantime, your business operations either come to a complete standstill or you have to postpone all plans of expansion until the building is ready for use. As they say in business, “Time is Money.”
With temporary structures, you can have your additional space up and ready to run in weeks. In addition, it will be ready at a fraction of the cost it would take to put up or buy a permanent one. Additionally, depending on your budget, you may opt to rent one for the duration it takes to build your permanent structure.
Moreover, your temporary structure will be designed and built to your specifications.
Moving to a New Site
Expanding your business may sometimes mean moving to a different job site. One reason could be that the current site is too small to accommodate your new plans. Secondly, the new site could be a better location for your business.
Temporary structures are portable and can be installed anywhere. If you have one or a few on your old site, it is easy to dismantle, move and install them on the new site.
It is also possible to have Smart Space build your structures then transport them to the jobsite and erect them. The company will follow the timeline agreed upon and be on hand to assist with any inquiries that you may have.
Temporary buildings offer the same facilities as permanent ones and can be made just as comfortable. What is more, they come with the added advantage of being eco-friendly. They even cost less to run! This is because they let in lots of natural light and ventilation thus ensuring that your energy bills do not run high.
The running of a business requires every coin that can be saved. Temporary structures present an alternative for acquiring the space you need quickly and without spending too much on it. The left over cash can be invested in the expansion of business.
Furthermore, they are custom-made to suit your specific needs and have all the fixtures and installations that you would find in a permanent structure. Also, you do not need to take a break from your business operations as the installation takes a very short time.
